Trust me; the city is horrible. I should know, I recently moved here.
It’s really far away from the mountains, you can hardly see them at all.
Some of the most isolated, empty and spectacular red rock is not within a 4 hour drive.
You can’t go ski tour at the end of May.
You can’t go camping on a Thursday after work, catch the sunrise and be at work the next day by 8:45.
You shouldn’t move here. It’s terrible; I should know, there are way too many hills, the trail running is way too tough.
(ps – visitors are always welcome)
